Island for a year.  Tom, have you heard anything about this?

I don't think this means they can't export. Currently all coffee has 
to be inspected to export and I think that would continue. Many 
Hawaiian coffee roasters import coffee from the states, and it has to 
be fumigated in order to import it. The article really isn't very 
detailed, but the fungus sounds like an interesting way to combat 
Broca.
